Summary

This tool provides information on the use of mixtures to reduce disease in wheat-based rotations. Increasing diversity through sowing of mixtures can improve yield and reduce disease pressure. The tool is a power point presentation with research results and facts, providing information to farmers and agronomists working in integrated pest management in wheat-based systems in Europe.
The research leading to these results has received funding from the European Union Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) under the grant agreement n°265865
